Questions for people who say “politically correct” and “cancel culture”

  • Do you think it’s wrong to extend basic decency to people in the way we talk to them and about them?
  • Do you think it’s wrong for there to be consequences for our behavior?
  • Do you agree actions (especially harmful actions) have consequences, but are afraid there are too many, too much?
  • Do you personally know someone who has lost their livelihood due to a truly minor offense?
  • Are you allowing people to manipulate you into being more scared of consequences than you need to be?
  • Why do you suppose someone might be pushing to create fear, paranoia, and sense of persecution?
  • What ends might that push be serving?

🚲 to Chris’s 🍨🌮 for lunch. Best idea.

Hi Apple Watch 👋

Very nice to meet you. Really excited about all the cool exercise stuff we’re doing. One request though:

Could you maybe not give me stand up reminders when we are in sleep mode? kthxbye

I’m hearing more and more “Indunapliss”

Could we not?

Even better we could come up with a new city name?

🎶 Did You Know?

It’s not officially Autumn until you’ve listened to Opeth’s Blackwater Park straight through.

I think part of the joy of 🚲 is that it forces you to be mindful and present in the moment.

(Sadly this is because you are constantly aware of your surroundings to help ensure you don’t get murdert.)
